If you like guiness than you will love this, subtle tastes of coffee with a nice roasted finish, very smooth and very tasty. arone12 (930) - Maryland, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Pours a black color with a thin head. Smells of coffee. Pretty dry, roasted taste with some burnt coffee and chocolate. Pretty decent beer! TommyTilt (67) - Maryland, USA - FEB 13, 2011
On tap at DuClaw in Bel Air. Handed to me with and was very dark. Small tan head. Cocoa, roasted coffee, malty, and a hint of vanilla. Dry earthy bitter finish. Like it a lot. Cant wait for the next release. hellbilly (3248) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2010
server said old ale but this was clearly a stout. at arundel mills 6/13/10.
pours darker than alchemy with a lasting beige film.
very roasty aroma with notes of coffee, nearly burned sugar and some bitter cocoa.
the flavor is a richer version of the aroma with added hints of chocolate and dark pit fruit.
the medium body is soft and smooth. easy enough to put away that i ordered one after the sampler. 6/4/6/4/15/3.5 msante79 (2225) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2010

On tap at Arundel Mills. Good stout ... smooth, strong coffee tones. Dark, translucent. tan head. Capa (3330) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAR 29, 2010
Very roasty malts with some coffee and light herbal tones. Smooth, medium mouthfeel. Light caramel malts with just a touch of smoke. I thought this was a solid stout, actually, and could have downed a few of them. lamas (1648) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Draft at Bowie location on 03/26/10. Arrived at the table a dark, dark mahogany with a skim of a tan head. Strong aroma of dutch cocoa, roasted coffee, burnt malts, toffee, and a hint of vanilla. Goes down with a medium body. The taste starts off sweet with some toffee, cocoa, and a touch of vanilla. Bittering burnt malts, an earthiness, and roasted coffee flavors at the end. A very dry finish that lingers. Not bad, just not very memorable. willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAR 24, 2010
20100324 Tap at Bel Air spot. Dark cola brown with small, quick tan head of loose foam. Aroma of mild coffee, slight vanilla, slight woodsy litter. Fair eff good match for lighter body, tending to too light but okay I guess for dry/irish style. Flavor is mostly roasty with nice coffee and earthy bitterness lingering. Overall a pleasant though pretty generic dry stout to have been surrounded by such a hubub. Twas the season, I suppose. dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2009
Draft at Fell’s - Black with a thin tan head, roasted malt aroma, malty roasted flavor, little sweetness, slightly watery... pretty decent
